A brand new show presented by Henry Maynard
In this hilarious, absurd and often magical show, which juxtaposes themes of loneliness and belonging with joy and exhilaration, we are invited to witness one man's quest for a friend. Pathos, dark humour and Victorian aesthetics combine to create a wonderful and mysterious backdrop to a poetic and surreal journey.
"Joyful, intelligent and downright funny… Has the potential to storm next year's Edinburgh Fringe" – Views from the Gods on Tatterdemalion work-in-progress, Nov 2014
Henry Maynard is artistic director of Flabbergast Theatre. Hit shows include: Boris and Sergey's Vaudevillian Adventure and its follow-up Boris and Sergey's Perilous Escapade. Flabbergast was set up to make uncompromising and exciting physical theatre drawing on the Bunraku style of puppetry, and on their belief that all theatre should be engaging and sweaty.
